This is a wonderful find! Not often can you find all the precious cups that fit in the holder. This has 6 cups with a beautiful Imari designs on the outside and a smaller one on the inside. The holder has a Imari pattern on the top and on the eight sided base. An elegant cobalt blue handle is attached to the base. The cobalt handle and Imari pattern have been lavishly accented with gold outlines. The cups fit nicely in the holder. I found the reference to the pattern number on Christies Auction house website for an Imari pot from Royal Crown Derby. This site did not show the pictures so we are still unclear as to the maker. There are no chips or cracks to the pieces. There are a few flea bits on the rims of a couple cups that have been gilded over and there is minimal crazing to the earthenware. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Backstamp: Pattern# 1673 on one cup and the holder. All pieces have 18 stamped on them.
Measures: 8" W x 5 1/2' H cups 2' H x 1 7/8" W
